Very simple.. if you don't have a hub or switch, you need a 'cross over cable' which is similar to a normal ethernet cable, but different pin configuration. With the cross over cable between the two pc's (plugged into the ethernet ports) you have to make sure the windows & any third part firewall is off.. change the IP address & subnet mask to the same subnet.. Eg. Click Start button, control panel, click on network connections, click on the local connection that is in connected state, select properties, find the (TCP/IP) option double click on that, select the 'use the following address' radio button (dot in the circle) then enter a new (ficticious) address like 10.0.0.8, then a subnet of 255.255.255.0 - Then do the same on the other PC.. except the IP address must be different Eg 10.0.0.7 - There are a number of other ways to do this, but this is probably the simplist. Remember to put the IP back to way you found it, otherwise your internet access may not work when you plug your normal internet cable back in. Remember o turn the firewall back on. Boot the pc's. Good Luck.

    Actually, I have descibed how to connect the pc's but you will also need to do all this as an administrator, & map a network drive to gain access to the other pc. You can use the network setup wizzard, or map a drive manually.. via Explore - right mouse click the start button, select Explore.. Then go to tools (on the task bar) map network drive.. You shud be able to access the other pc. I guess it sounds complicated.. But once you have done one, it all makes sense.

How do i connect my desk top to my wireless router


The blue ethernet cable from the modem to the internet port on the router. The other ethernet cable goes from one of the other ports on the router, to the ethernet input on your desktop tower. That should do it.

Hi

Not clear whether you installed SP1 on the client or the server.

Try resetting or powering off and on the L230 and let it reintroduce itself to the network.

Also restart the computer that had the SP1 installed on it.

If none of the above resolves the problem, enter Network settings on the client and ensure that Neywork Discovery and File Sharing are not turned off. If they are off, enter Network and Sharing Center and use the Drop Down arrows on the right to turn them and any other desired options on.

Hope this helps.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LAN(WORKGROUP) AND NCOMPUTING. ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES.


Not sure what you mean by LAN workgroup. If you're referring to traditional Local Area Networked PCs and sharing files on a server, the NComputing solution is very different. Imagine taking a standard LAN with 20 PCs, each costing at least $500 (usually much more), and having them access a network. That cost would run you $500 * 20 or $10,000. That's just for the hardware, not any of the soft dollar costs. Additionally each PC uses a minimum of 100 Watts of Power, more common these days is 250 Watts.
Now take the NComputing solution. Start by replacing ALL 20 PCs with a $150 L230 or a $200 L300 device, which only consumes 5 Watts of power. Purchase one server, say $2,000. Load up NComputing's vSpace on the server and connect all of the L devices through the network. Every user still gets their own desktop, access to the network and other peripherals. And the I.T. department now has ONE Desktop OS touch points, not 20 as they did before. Thus the NComputing solution can reduce support costs, consume less CapEx and OpEx budget while delivering desktop sessions to each user. In this example the cost would be $2,000 + (20 * $150) = $5,000.

Verifone vx610


#1 You need the Vmac and Comserv applications that were deleted when you cleared memory in order to perform an IP download. Without them you can only perform a dial only download.
#2 The programming for your VX510 will not load in your VX610 because they doth identify to the server as different models. If you did get the vx610 to connect and request your vx510 file you would only recieve an error "Application not configured" or "file not found"

Pro Tip: You can still clone VX terminals reguardless of model with the correct cable. Enter system mode and press 0 the # or 0 then * to send and recieve. This would put the application from the vx510 into the vx610 but your vx610 may not work through a com method other than dial depending on your processor.

Upgrade 238622-001, Compaq Evo T30 Thin Client 300Mhz 32MB Flash/64MB/Win CE NET/IE 5.5 w/o


You need to replace the 2mbit bios chip used by the WinCE Evo with the 4mbit one used by the NTe and XPe Evo, then you need an add on flash module, since the onboard flash is too small. After that, just find the OS file and flash away. You can find the OS files and a utility to flash from the HP support site. You'll need a crossover ethernet cable, not a patch cable, to do the flash.
